Story by Jack Foley

MIKE & The Mechanics have announced their 2019 nationwide Looking Back Over My Shoulder Tour of the UK.

The run of dates include an epic run of 34 UK concerts in February, March and April, including the prestigious Royal Albert Hall next year on April 1, 2019.

Tickets are on sale now.

Mike & The Mechanics are Genesis founding member Mike Rutherford (Guitar) – one of the UK’s most prolific R&B singer, Andrew Roachford – Lead and backing vocals – (whose previous hits include Cuddly Tour and Family Man) and Canadian-born singer, Tim Howar – lead and backing vocals – who formed and toured with his band Vantramp, with the likes of Rod Stewart and Paulo Nutini.

Tim shares vocal duties with Roachford and they both add a new soulful dimension to the band’s already established sound.

Following on from their recent sold-out tour in the US, the Looking Back Over My Shoulder Tour in 2019, will include tracks from their highly acclaimed latest album Let Me Fly. Also included will be their massive 80s hit single, The Living Years, which became a NO. 1 hit in the US.
